My thoughts on this hand was i raised pre flop 3x because people were playing very spewwy in this play money table. Flopped a gutshot with 2 over cards and i proceeded to continuation bet 60% of the pot. Got rid of one and the guy who called has been very agresive basically going all in alot. so i had a good read on him. the turn was a 7, so i though he mighta gotten a draw and would have went with it so i just pushed. Fair enough he called with hearts and didnt get there.

Thanks for the analysis ill be looking forward to it.






I have watched the video and passed the basic quiz.

Thanks.

Hi FinalsTv! I'll analyse the hand in post #5.

Pre-flop is fine. Villain initially minraised, but then puts in a 4-bet when the action comes back to him. On a real money table, this would be concerning, because a 4-bet is usually KK+/AK, but your read on this guy was that he was splashing around, so calling in position with AJs is fine. You flopped a gutshot to the wheel, and the pre-flop raiser doesn't make a continuation bet, which would be mandatory if he had an overpair. Taking a half-pot stab is fine, as you often have the best hand, so it's not a huge problem even if you get called. Both villains call, and this puts you in a tough spot on the turn, as you have less than a pot-sized bet in your stack. When both villains check, you can either shove all in, or you can check behind and take a free card to see if you improve. Shoving is OK, because the villains will fold pretty often, but even if a villain hit the 7, you still have outs. If he wants to call with a flush draw, that's a mistake, as he's not getting the right price to do so. Fortunately for you, villain misses with his flush draw and two overs (15 outs in total, which is a lot!) and you drag the pot. Nice hand.
On the real money tables, players won't call off their stacks so light very often, and it's generally a mistake to try and bluff, as they will call with all their made hands, meaning you'll be getting your chips in as an underdog. Where possible try and keep the pot small if you haven't made a hand, by checking behind in position so you can try and improve for free.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arty

Excellent!

You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you.
Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

Then study the Cash Game Course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus.

1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.
2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it.
3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks completed and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Hi FinalsTv,

I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

88 is a good starting hand and since I don't favor open limping into pots I would be happy raising my hand to 0.06$ As played I think check/calling on this flop is okay since players would generally cbet dry flops and a paired board is a dry one but I don't think betting turn has much added value especially with that sizing. When we bet we want to address the following question: can worse hands call? will better hands fold? If we don't have an answer to those questions then checking should be the line to take. 88 has SD value and betting on the J will get called by Jx, Ax hands and we fold all the hands that we beat.

GL at the tables!

Hi again FinalsTv,

Folding preflop would have avoided us this fancy play
Now that we raised, I think this flop is good for us and we can go for a one and done here so I like cbetting in hopes to take it down on the flop. But otherwise we should be giving up. It's important to note that at micro stakes bluffing becomes less profitable and we should do it less frequently especially when we don't have any equity to fall on. Value betting is more important.

GL!
